Everything that happened after the Packers game was a freeroll.  I'm never going to turn down my nose at a Super Bowl appearance.  Good season.

And Pete's call was fine.  It absolutely was not the worst call in Super Bowl history.

After listening and reading expert analysis, I agree that Carroll is getting a bad rap. It was actually a statistically safe play that was meant to give them two shots at running the ball in leaving no time on the clock. Turns out an unknown DB had practiced defending that exact play, saw Wilson telegraphing the pass and jumped the route, out-muscling someone much larger than him.

The first INT in over 100 passing attempts from the 1yd line this year.

Suck it Seahawks.

Most people just wanted the Seahawks to win because they hate the shit out of Tom Brady.

We drafted the greatest linebacker and QB in the NFL last year, and that was only the first round. I expect four hall of famers this draft.

Why the fuck is seattle passing the football on the 1 yard line,  with the most powerful running back in the league?

It may go down as the worst call in the history of the Super Bowl.

Cost me $200.  I had 4/4 on my block pool, which won me the 2nd and 3rd quarter for $100 each.  I also had 1/8 and the final score was worth $200.  I could have won 80% of the money in the whole pool if they had just handed the fucking ball to Lynch.  >o<

Now we can concentrate on the only story that matters: were footballs slightly deflated in a game whose outcome it did not affect.

But what if it affected the Baltimore game? Who knows how many years and how many games this has been happening. In a blowout game, it may not matter, but in a field goal game it very well may matter.

The ball was probably inflated normally indoors and simply dropped pressure outside due to the cold. Since it can (and does) happen, unless someone comes forward and says "hell yeah I deflated the ball and took pictures of me doing it while doing lines of coke" then there is reason to believe it is simply a case of no one there understanding fluid dynamics.

You clearly know nothing about the NFLs standard of evidence.

It is amazing to me that all these former NFL players are calling Tom Brady a cheat, but not a word about steroids to be found.

Well, now that Chip Kelly has murdered my team I'm shopping around for someone to root for who might actually get somewhere next season.  Any suggestions?
